Orbital Aspergillosis: A Rare Case of Proptosis
Keywords:Orbital, fungal infections, aspergillosis, lymphoma
Orbital mycosis is a serious infection that may first present to the ophthalmologist in the form of proptosis with pain in the eye. Radiological diagnosis of such a lesion may mimic neoplastic space occupying pathology of the orbit. As such a definite diagnosis of such lesion is utmost importance for proper treatment in these cases. We report here a rare case of orbital mycosis with CNS extension in an immunocompetent individual which was radiologically suspected to be of lymphomatous origin.
